Posted 4 years ago white91Member myprotein do a decent one Posted 4 years ago legendMember 2 litre fizzy juice bottle. Drink all the Irn-Bru* from it, fill with water, job done. *assuming Scotland Posted 4 years ago d45ythMember The cheap one’s go soft or start to disintegrate. The high-density foam one’s last a lot longer. Posted 4 years ago singlespeeddanMember Sports direct do one for a bout a fiver. Money well spent i reckon Posted 4 years ago EarlMember for my IT band i use a 2lt plastic coke bottle …. Posted 4 years ago butcherMember Sports direct do one for a bout a fiver. Money well spent i reckon Since there’s a Sports Direct round the corner from work I might check that out. Can’t go wrong for a fiver! Posted 4 years ago tenacious_dougMember Cheap Decathlon one is getting noticeably deformed after 3 months use. No idea how long it will last compared to a pricey one though. Posted 4 years ago TiRedMember By contrast, my Triggerpoint looks like new and was used a lot for the first six months. Now it;s just for a recovery massage. It is a great piece of kit. Posted 4 years ago butcherMember A big foam rolling pin. It can’t be that complicated surely. Should I just buy the cheapest. Or do you get what you pay for? Posted 4 years ago mcnultycopSubscriber Ged the widest one you can. A great buy, I’ve just had a post squats session on mine and I know because of that I’ll feel better tomorrow. Posted 4 years ago tony24Member Argos do 1 for £10 Posted 4 years ago fenredMember FIT66 eBay, £20ish when I bought mine a couple of years ago. Drinks bottles nowhere near hard enough for my ITB. Posted 4 years ago andybanksMember A good guide for when you’ve got one – cycling specific http://www.bicycling.com/training-nutrition/injury-prevention/roll-out-kinks Posted 4 years ago DanWMember A water bottle just isn’t firm enough to do the job and cheap foam doesn’t last as others have said. I use a 45cm foam roller from PhysioSupplies- well worth the extra few pennies. Posted 4 years ago hmanchesterMember Cheap ones do go soft very quickly and there is definitely an upper limit on technology in a foam roller. As suggested above, one of the Fit 66 ones from ebay/amazon are a good compromise. Or if you’re feeling evil a Rumble Roller Posted 4 years ago wellywheelsMember i use this, tad expensive thou £40 ish. only got this one over the others as it’s hollow, so when i was racing world cups last year and had to travel on the plane with it, i could stuff it full of kit. so it wouldn’t take up to much room in the kit bag. Posted 4 years ago SkillWillMember Just happened to click buy on one of those ^ on Amazon about 2 mins ago, so glad to hear they are good. You can get the orange one for £32 with free delivery at the moment. Posted 4 years ago wellywheelsMember I’ve had it for over a year now, and the foam is still just as good as when i bought it. Posted 4 years ago Mary HingeMember I made mine! Had some 5″ underground soil pipe left over from a job, cut it to about 24″ long. Wrapped in a single layer of foam sleeping mat fastened with a bit of gaffer tape. Works perfectly. Was hard when I first started, but it really works as I can do 4 or 5 times more “rolls” now than I could 6 months ago. Posted 4 years ago EuroMember I just used an old rug rolled into a tube. Posted 4 years ago SkillWillMember I just used some old seagull beaks wrapped in crepe paper. Posted 4 years ago DT78Member That rumble roller does look evil.
